Women in science need champions, not mentors

At the recent Women in Science dinner at ANU, six female scientists came from all over Australia to share knowledge from their own work in gender equality. The panellists were Margaret Barbour (University of Sydney), Rachel Burton (University of Adelaide), Adele Holloway (University of Tasmania), Helen Irving (Monash University), Martha Ludwig (University of Western Australia) and Sudha Rao (University of Canberra).

The event was held at Teatro Vivaldi and was attended by 65 people. It was co-sponsored by the ANU Gender Institute, the Centre of Excellence for Translational Photosynthesis, the Centre of Excellence for Plant Energy Biology, the University of Canberra, the Australian Society of Plant Scientists, the Australian Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and Nectar (ANU’s Early Career Scientists and Academics association).
